Dan Henderson wants a fight. At heavyweight

GSP / Carlos Condit / Nick Diaz isn’t the only triangle of stupidity going on at the moment in the UFC. There’s also Jon Jones / Rashad Evans / Dan Henderson. Hendo has been in the interesting position of playing back-up contender for Jon Jones just in case Rashad Evans lost to Phil Davis or was injured during their fight. Much was made of Dan allegedly turning down this fight or that in favor of sitting and waiting to see how the title situation would shake out. But now that Rashad is definitely fighting Jon Jones, it sounds like Dan is rearing to go:

“I don’t know what the plan is, but I’d fight whoever it is they think would be a good match-up. The problem is there’s really nobody right now who fits the bill for a title contention fight, that would make sense to fight me. I don’t know. Maybe I’d fight at a different weight class. I don’t know if they see anybody at heavyweight that would make sense? But I would prefer to fight someone in April or May. … Who do the fans want me to fight at heavyweight? I’d have to think about that. I don’t know who at heavyweight would even make sense. The heavyweights that are in title contention right now wouldn’t want to fight me. I don’t know who is out there, but I did let the UFC know I’d be open to that as well.”

Meanwhile, Lyoto Machida is waving his arms around going “Hey, halloooo! I am still alive!” That certainly seems like a more interesting fight than Hendo vs some heavyweight gatekeeper.

    I wanna see him knock Mike Russow’s fat ass out so bad

    I think Henderson wants a fight that won’t jeopardize his title shot.

    If he loses at heavyweight, no biggie. If he loses at LHW, his title hopes are basically finished.

    That’s pretty unfair; Hendo would just need to look at Struve and he’d lawnchair-up instantly!

  • CAP

    Nah Hendo needs to be in line for a LHW title shot. HW doesn’t make sense other than to keep him busy but puts a good fight with Bones at risk. Hendo/Piss Breathe (not soobo) would be a good scrap.

    I would love to see Hendo VS the Dragon.
